GreenLeaf Tree Care’s ash tree removal process includes cutting the tree into manageable sections from the top down and using safety ropes and pulleys to control the descent of heavy branches. Removing an ash tree typically involves assessing the tree’s health, as many are affected by the Emerald Ash Borer. The stump is then ground down to prevent regrowth, ensuring a thorough ash tree removal. All debris is safely and ecologically removed from your property.

Identifying an ash tree

Ash trees are known for their compound leaves, which are made up of 5 to 11 leaflets arranged oppositely along the stem. These trees have smooth, gray bark when young, which becomes furrowed and diamond-patterned as they mature. The seeds of ash trees, known as samaras, are winged and resemble small paddles. Common ash tree species include White Ash and Green Ash. 

They are valued for their strong, elastic wood, often used in making baseball bats and tool handles. They can grow up to 80 feet tall, with a wide, rounded canopy. Ash trees are also known for their brilliant yellow to purple fall foliage, making them a standout in autumn landscapes.

Ash trees are particularly vulnerable to the emerald ash borer (EAB), an invasive insect that has caused extensive damage to ash tree populations across North America. If your ash tree is infested, it can become weak and hazardous, posing a risk to your property and safety. Removing an infested or dead ash tree promptly can prevent accidents and help protect other trees in your area from infestation.

Delaying the removal of a dead or diseased ash tree can pose several risks, including the potential for falling branches or the entire tree collapsing, which can cause property damage or personal injury. Additionally, a diseased tree can spread pests and diseases to nearby healthy trees, exacerbating the problem.

Signs that your ash tree may need removal include extensive damage from the emerald ash borer (EAB), such as thinning leaves, bark splitting, or D-shaped exit holes on the bark. Other indicators are large dead branches, a declining canopy, or significant structural damage. If you notice any of these signs, it’s important to contact GreenLeaf Tree Removal for a professional assessment to determine the best course of action.
